If you’ve recently been to Climb Central, you would have walked past the newest addition to our training area, the Endurance Wall, a.k.a., the rainbow ‘Wall of Fame’!
What is it?
The endurance wall is fitted with a large selection of holds. Different sequences of movements between holds can be devised at your will.
How do I use it?
Train endurance by doing continuous climbing for timed intervals or until you’re too tired to continue.
Train recovery by shaking out your arms and finding rest positions on the wall
Increase the difficulty by attempting longer routes or more complicated sequences. As with all training equipment, we do have some guidelines and rules in place to make sure everyone helps to keep to training area safe!
Below are some of the DOs and DON’Ts to take note of:
DO use it for warm-ups
DO use it for endurance training
DO use with caution
DO adjust the crashpad before climbing
DO watch where and how you fall
DO share with other climbers
DO NOT make boulder problems on it
DO NOT make jumps and big risky moves on it
DID YOU KNOW...
Each of the colourful holds was affectionately named by a Climb Central crew, instructor, route-setter or Youth Team member!
So the next time you train with a buddy, go ahead and shout out the names of the holds you want each other to grab.
“Pinch that iPad, grab the Sambal Kangkong, crimp the Cheese, pull on that Teh Ping!”
Have fun getting stronger! Allez!
